    ladders are ladders pal,as long as they dont look haggered and nice and sturdy with the rubber ends still intact you'll be ok but make sure you buy some nice light ones, i have a 10 rung set i cut down and then i got a set of decent youngman ladders that are 13-14 rung and they was like new off an old man for £40!
    i then bought all my unger stuff from wintecs as they do free postage.
    as above if you read up on the basic gear you need to get started you'll not go too wrong,the hard bit is building customers up!
